    That's basically how my parents are, though only my mother WAS a Christian. My father, well, I can say that his opinion on religion is that it's many times a dangerous thing and can put stubborn believers in a twist (Holy Crusade, Taliban and Al'Qaida (d.a.m.n.e.d. be all of them)). I'm a more or less spiritual person and can tolerate a religion as long as it's not preached to me by force or through TV (thus exaggerated to the point that I'm certain everyone is on PCP or something ).
    I really don't understand the supremacist groups a.k.a. Scum of the Earth (Fred Phelps, KKK, etc.) though.... I wish they'd just all disappear...

    I guess there isn't a slot for all that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    Suzanne,

    You would be a Neo-Patchworkist too as I define it (and since I made up the term I get to make up the definition too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] )

    lol Pyro...yeah, that would probably fit. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Or you could say I'm a pagabudda....or buddagan? hehe

    I don't believe in "God" but don't consider myself an aetheist. I don't personally care for organized religion as I've seen a lot of hypocrisy in religion and I've seen it cause a lot of harm to both groups and individuals. But I FIRMLY believe in everyone's right to worship who and how they please, **AS LONG AS they don't hurt anybody**. That's where I draw the line. Religion shouldn't HARM. (I remember with disgust the case of a 12 yr old boy who died a slow and agonizing death on a couch at home suffering from gangrene in an untreated broken leg...Christian Scientist parents. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] ) I don't know how anyone could watch a child suffer like that and die and say "god" wanted it that way. That's when religion is at its worst.

    I prefer to tend my own path and not worry about someone not believing or thinking as I do.

    Differences make the world a better place...and tolerance greases the wheel to make it all run smoothly. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I am 100% atheist!!!! I cannot help but to look upon the crucifix and feel nothing. I believe in science, mathematics, statistics, etc. all religions follow the same patterns to me. More people have died in the name of religion than any other reason, and so I bid farewell to theology and worship my true savior, myself.

    Odysseus--> when I was a child I used to attend an LDS church with my mother. I have many memories of the missionaries that would come over and hang out/help out and get a good meal. I met some excessively nice individual there. I find it exceedingly commendable that the LDS faith put so much emphasis on the family and exists within a very guiltless state. I have always detested the guilt that usually went along with Christianity. My mother still attends that very church regularly.
    In bleak description the waves come crashing; battering the very instinct of every lusting moment to fulfill this gaping desire. A mouth as dry as soot and how it once had tasted of life, fit within a momentís time; And how those fleeting days laid in the light of blissful suffering. -me

    Exclamation

    "do what thou wilt but harm none" -- sound familiar to anyone?
    "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" -- same thing?

    And there is also more than one Travis here, Travis.' [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I, too, would like to hear your answers to 'fatboy's' questions, Odysseus.
    Also, while I revere Mother Earth, I don't think it could be said that I 'worship' it/her. We sure had better take care of this planet since it's our sole life support. That is part of my "mission" here. I also donate my professional services frequently to those who would benefit but cannot afford them. And I carry around a gentle joy for others I meet. I value life - as I said before elsewhere, we're all in this together. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
